Paul di Resta was surprised that his teammate Nico Hulkenberg decided to leave Force India for immediate rivals Sauber for 2013, suggesting that it wasn’t the best decision for the future.

The German was announced to replace the McLaren-bound Sergio Perez next year at the Swiss team, which is currently ahead of Force India by 25 points in sixth place in the constructors’ championship ahead of the season-finale.

"I don't see it as being a step up, to be perfectly honest. I see it as an equal kind of status,” di Resta was quoted saying by Autosport. "Long term where you see this team is going, I think it is probably better (at Force India).

"(Sauber) have had a couple of remarkable results, and I am not going to deny that,” the Scot added referring to the four podium positions that Perez and teammate Kamui Kobayashi registered this year. “But in terms of consistency, we have got a lot. It may be different.

"Next year may be different, and I don't know the full reasons why Nico has gone there," he added saying that he was content with continuing at a well-structured and progressing Force India.
